"In the tradition of Sliding Doors..." - a review by pearly

Pamela Drury (Rachel Griffiths) has a pretty good life. She's a successful journalist with a swag of awards to her name. But she's single. She wonders what her life might have been like if she'd accepted Robert Dickson's marriage proposal all those years ago. And, you guessed it, she's about to find out.

Rachel Griffiths is so comfortable with herself. There's something so natural about the characters that she plays, that you can't help but be taken on their journey. As married Pamela, she is taken into a world where she is totally out of her element. We see her struggle, and slowly come to appreciate both this, and her single life.

The plot of this film is similar to Sliding Doors (1998) in many ways, and is almost an exact copy of Family Man (2000) (just exchange the female lead for Nicolas Cage, and hey presto!). I won't spend time analysing which came first, but let's just say there's nothing particularly ground-breaking here. I also found that the moral of the story was somewhat ambiguous - did Pamela actually make any decisions about herself?

Me Myself I is a fun way to spend a couple of hours, but it's not an incredibly amazing film, by any means.

pearly gives this movie 6 out of 10.
